PwC India Launches Employee Engagement Initiatives to Promote Sustainable Practices
As part of its goal to have net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, the consulting firm PwC India said it had started several programmes to get its employees involved in promoting sustainable practices.
In 2020, PwC India joined PwC network firms in a commitment to achieve net zero GHG (Greenhouse Gas) emissions by 2030.
"Our commitment is aligned to a 1.5 degree scenario, which is necessary to avert the worst impacts of climate change," it said in a release.
Furthermore, PwC India stated that the commitment to achieve a net-zero system by 2030 is primarily focused on reducing carbon emissions through a carbon mitigation hierarchy of avoidance, reduction, replacement, and offset.
PwC India said that as part of its goal to have net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2030, it started several employee engagement programmes, such as "Green Week" and "Conscious Choices," to encourage and teach employees about how to act sustainably.
It is also prioritising the decarbonisation of its operations, which includes reshaping how it serves clients, sustaining reductions in travel, and increasing the use of zero-carbon energy.
"The urgency around sustainability is a leveller for all, telling us that a greener world needs everyone's collective commitment and attention.
"The ownership lies with each one of us. We know that a commitment is only as good as the actions that follow, and so we are putting together a robust plan that will enable us to make the shift," Satyavati Berera, Partner and Net Zero Lead at PwC India, said.
PwC is a network of firms in 152 countries with over 3,27,000 people delivering assurance, advisory, and tax services.
